Chuck Berry: Extraordinaire Guitarist, Singer and Songwriter

0 Posted by - September 8, 2019 - Celebrity, ENTERTAINMENT

Extraordinaire guitarist, singer and songwriter, Chuck Berry took the world by storm in the 1950s. Berry created songs such as “Maybellene” (1955), “Roll Over Beethoven” (1956), “Rock and Roll Music” (1957) and “Johnny B. Goode” (1958).

Berry was born into a middle-class Black family in St. Louis, Missouri. He was the fourth child in a family of six and grew up in the north St. Louis neighborhood known as The Ville, an area where middle-class St. Louis people lived at the time. His father, Henry, was a contractor and deacon of a nearby Baptist church; his mother Martha was a certified public school principal.

As a young boy, Berry had an interest in music and entertaining. His first public performance was at Sumner High School. Berry spent time in jail as a teenager for armed robbery from 1944 to 1947. After getting out of jail, he married and worked at an automobile plant.

In 1955, Berry’s big break came when he traveled to Chicago and met Muddy Waters, who made suggestions as to who Berry should contact in the music business. Berry went on to record with Leonard Chess of Chess Records. He recorded “Maybellene,” which sold over a million copies. By the end of the 1950s, Berry was an established star with several hit records and film appearances to his name as well as a touring career. He had also established his own St. Louis-based nightclub called Berry’s Club Bandstand.

However, in January 1962, Berry was sentenced to three years in prison for offenses under the Mann Act, as he reportedly transported a 14-year-old girl across state lines. After his jail release in 1963, Berry recorded many other hits. He again served 120 days in jail for tax evasion, and after his release, he continued his music career.

At the request of Jimmy Carter, Berry performed at the White House on June 1, 1979. Berry was among the first musicians to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on its opening in 1986.

    Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!
